Thank you so much for your advice. I never thought I would have to watch my cat starve himself to death...literally. He seems very uncomfortable and changes positions every few minutes, but has been moving around more today than on the past five days. Last night we gave him a five-5ml syringes full of babyfood and chicken broth. He did not really enjoy that at all and was fighting us the whole time. He never seem to enjoy the taste. We are taking him tomorrow morning to have the feeding tube put in and I am afraid he will fight that too. Is there a way to sedate him in order to make sure doesn't knock out the tube? Where does the tube go in?
Thanks again for your help!
